Some more on slavery in Dubai.
gotta give a shoutout to ottawa

nothing wrong with this:
Palace of the Parliament, Bucharest, Romania
Cincinnati, aka the Queen City
I love Miami's and love driving through Cincinnati especially at night
here is Cincy's newest building opening up in a month
Buffalo City Hall ( why on earth a terrible city like buffalo needed such a grand city hall, idk)
Taking I-65 in Cincinnati is an awesome drive. I have never really been in the heart of the city but its cool driving by.
Not great pics, but some pics I have from last summer...
Baltimore(only nice part FWIW)
And just for fun
pretty sure the gatekeeper & key master are still up on the top just chillin
I think you mean I-75. I'd suggest stopping through and eating at Montgomery Inn if you like BBQ or somewhere downtown.
i swear to god those fucking asians just pool all their resources to build tall ass buildings
i google searched kearney nebraska to show yall our 5 story buildings. all that popped up was pictures of tornadoes
Huge project taking place in SF:

One of my favorite office buildings in Chicago, the Citigroup Center:
Buffalo and Albany have some great government buildings
here is a picture of downtown omaha with the new college world series baseball stadium (TD ameritrade park) with the lights on...thing is 85% done with just basically interior work being finished
I think it's important that we honor the building that started all of these behemoths:
Building is crazy live...second biggest building in the world behind the Pentagon IIRC....
This is the view looking back down their champs elysee knock off.
Couldn't find any great pictures but Istanbul is awesome...old part is gorgeous at night then farther north is the major bridge to Asia and the more modern skyscrapers.
Chicago is the best in the US tho.
Honorable mention to Pittsburgh.
Saint Peterburg, Home of the Man-Made UFO (Tropicana Field, Home of the Rays)
I'll post Tampa's for good measure as well since I'm there a lot
des moines is very underrated and a great little skyline for a city with 200,000>people, has great balance
Interesting graph on the tallest buildings in the world in the year 2015
What advancement in materials or architecture happened that made it possible for these monstrosities to be built so much taller than any before? Wasn't the WTC built in the 70's and it was the tallest in the world up until like 8 buildings have broken that height in the past ten years?
There really hasn't been too much advancement in materials, but I would say there has been major advancements in structural engineering which has lead to taller buildings. Also probably an advancement in the construction process. Don't have specifics, but those are the two areas that have lead to bigger structures. Steel is still Steel.
From the limited knowledge I have on the subject this sounds pretty correct.
Aqua - Chicago

Love the thread. No expert but I think Dubai is an example of how sometimes it can be issues of financial feasibility as much as structural feasibility. I'm assuming that for a lot of the Dubai projects short term payback wasn't as important as long term status of the city.(and were heavily publically fiancned) When the money was invested we can see what happened with the scale of contruction.
Absolutely love Aqua, one of the coolest designs of a building I have seen (well not personally seen, but pictures).
Unique without being really any different from your standard skyscraper design.
is also another issue. I thought about that right after I posted that response.
was here last summer, Arts and Sciences Center in Valencia, Spain
the architecture in Europe is amazing
